This week i will finish some cables for the power button and the other because next week i will be in vacation for 2 weeks.
Happy modding and keep it up all
Nice job so far, just a suggestion. Get some of that rubber u channel stuff. I would put it around the hole you cut for the pc bracket, so it doesn't scratch that big nice fancy power supply of yours, just something i would personally do. You can find the stuff in the US from mnpctech's online store.
Thanks Mansueto Nice idea i will look when the case is back.
I have bring today the case for painting (airbrush) wait and see how the case will look
Hi All no update because just back from vacation.
Also no good news the case is not finish painting i hope that it will be quick finish
Until then Keep it up
nice fresh ideas, can't wait to see it all done
keep it coming!!
(off topic) where do you usually get your plex dude? i am also from belgium (bruges) and brico doesn't give a good plexi?
sorry for off topic
(off topic) the crystal plexi where buy in Brico and the other by Hubo i have find all in brussel.
any updates dude?
i am really becoming excited on this
(off topic again)thanks for replying to my question, practically i live in Bruges and i dun have a car yet and that explains that i can't transport all large goodies using only buses and trains. thanks for the tips. i might visiting the Hubo nearby if i have a day-off.
Nice Mod so far! I like what you've done. and your pics and explanations. I really like the look of the white plexi interior and the cable hiding, and the dvd drive stealthing. Can you explain more or show more pics of how you attached the mesh front to the dvd front?
Also, have you thought about making the flame grill (now in metal, stick out in front of a different colored layer of plexi, perhaps lit light the case top and other parts? It's hard to make out for me in the night pics.
Thanks modminded for you comment i appreciate.
for the DVDRom i have use some parts of the case and make some holes and fixed with screws
Inside on the bottom
All are cover by the grills from the front.
The eject button are no more visible and i need to eject the DVD from windows.
For the fan grills the choice of metal was use because it will be painting.
No other pictures for the moment because the painting is not finish.
Hello modders mini Painting update

The metal fan grill is paint and ready
The top and one side panel start at 50%
The top before paint
